Update on Game of Thrones

I'm truly sorry to say now that I tried to read the first Game of Thrones to add here today, but I only got halfway through the book before I had to put it down. I did not like the way it was written. That is not to say that I did not think the style was good, but it certainly wasn't what I prefer. I will not take up your time with this post, only to say that I am returning to my favourite teen reads and will be doing reviews on them in the next couple weeks.  Thanks again, and sorry if I offended anyone.

The Hobbit by Tolkien

Hey everyone, just finished reading The Hobbit, by Tolkien. As most of you know I have been diving into my geek side lately and have been reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy. To finish off the series I read the Hobbit.  Now don't angry at me for saying this, but I truly loved the Hobbit more than I liked the trilogy. I found there wasn't so much to remember, and they didn't feel the need to explain everything in such great a detail. The characters were loveable, and the storyline was great.

The only problem is of course that their mountain home was once claimed by a dragon that still lives there. Bilbo's job? To get into the mountain and defeat the dragon while he is confused by the sight of the Hobbit. Now B


Hey everyone! Just a quick update between reviews, I have decided that I am going to try to post a review ever Monday from now on. I'm not sure how I am going to keep up, but I feel like I need to keep getting more books out there and increase my viewers. So far I have reached over 700 views in 10 different countries, and that makes me really happy! So thanks everyone who supported me through all of this. Check out the rest of my blog here -----------------> Thanks again, and have a great day! :)

The Fellowship of the Ring by Tolkien

Hey everyone! So the long awaited book of the century has been read finally! Lord of the rings was a fabulous movie with an amazing story line. For the longest time I have been waiting to read the series and see how much detail the movie had missed, and I must say I was not disappointed!  I found that the movie really romanticized everything, adding in relationships between any character they could. And the hobbits were a lot different as they were actually almost 50 years old in the book, compared to the young looking hobbits in the movie. Now I understand that the hobbits in the movie were also that old, but it was hard to imagine because they had child like faces! A character they missed out on in the movie, and whom they did a very good job completely leaving out in every way, was Tom Bombadill. The crazy old man who lived in the forests and was older than time itself. He was funny and insane all at the same time! A good combination if you ask me. So the book starts out slow
